Even though the Braves won’t be able to bring the World Series title home before returning to Atlanta for Game 3, fans can send them off in style to bring a lead back to Truist Park.


The team is departing from the stadium at 12 p.m. Monday.

Fans are invited to bring their signs, don their favorite gear and line up outside the Third Base Gate on Battery Avenue to cheer the team on as they head out for Houston.

If you can’t make it to send the team off, show us how you #RepTheA here and your favorite World Series memories here.
